The "balloon disaster" pictures for which Wade accepted a hundred bucks bonus [23:17], though taken by Flash Casey, were a vague reference to the Hindenburg disaster which had taken place in New Jersey on Thursday 6 May '37, just months before the film's release in '38.
[At 33:28] the orchestra at Major Addison's exclusive Society bazaar to benefit the Hospital for Crippled Children is playing "Tumbling Tumble Leaves", a song composed by Bob Nolan but reworked into the title "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" and popularized in the 1935 musical film Western film starring Gene Autry by the same name, a Flash Casey contemporary.
Memorable line [beat cop to detained speeding Yellow Cabbie]:
"Well, let's here the story, brother, and make it funny."

"Flash", get it?
Flash will be a photojournalist when he gets out of college. Flash wins a photography contest and gets a big scoop. This is one of Grand Nationals light hearted fluffs. You are going to like, you big lug. Try and count how many times the name Flash is used, bet you canât. I hate to admit that sometimes I like mindless entertainment.
